"I believe that I shouldn't remake such a classic film. Once a film like that is made you can't make it again. I don't think I have enough talent to do such a film," Kapoor told reporters here during a visit to the city.

When asked about reports quoting his father Rishi Kapoor saying they would remake 'Awara' with Ranbir in the lead, the 30-year-old actor said, "Even I read in the papers only."  

Starring the director-actor Raj Kapoor, Prithviraj Kapoor and Nargis, 'Awara' was included by Time magazine in its All-Time 100 list of the greatest films made since 1923.

Ranbir, who would be seen with Deepika Padukone in the romantic film 'Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani', said he doesn't have the six-pack abs needed to do an action film.

"Of course I want to do an action film. But for that I don't have the body. When I get a good action film I will build my body for that," said Kapoor.

When asked whether he felt awkward acting with ex-girlfriend Deepika, he said, "Me and Deepika came into the industry individually as actors. We both are hardworking, passionate about films and ambitious. Why will there be any awkwardness between me and her?"

The duo had earlier acted together in the 2008 romantic movie 'Bachna Ae Haseeno'.
